Clough & Willis celebrates growth one year after Marston becomes managing partner

Just over a year since Lee Marston took over as managing partner of Bury & Bolton based law firm Clough & Willis, the business has secured rises in turnover for several of its departments.

Over the past 12 months, Employment work has jumped by 24%, whilst cases handled by the Corporate department are up by 15% and by 4% in Litigation. 

Since becoming managing partner, Lee has managed the firm’s day-to-day operations, driven its strategic growth and continued to develop its people and working practices. 

Lee became a partner in 2001 and has headed up the Family team since 2000, is a Resolution Accredited Specialist in the financial side of divorce and children disputes and was a founding member of the Family Law Panel. Lee acts for a cross section of clients and has a particular expertise in acting for the owners of large businesses.

Lee Marston commented: “The last 12 months has been a period of transition and growth for the firm and these results are evidence of everyone’s hard work and efforts. We’ve focussed on delivering the very best service to our clients as well as on our own growth strategy and that approach is starting to pay dividends.” Lee added: We have also grown our headcount by around 14% in the last year. These new arrivals – both lawyers and support staff - have slotted in seamlessly with our existing team and have also played a big part in this success. Our focus is now on building on these foundations to ensure Clough & Willis is best placed for all future opportunities and expansion.”
